Our server left our table twice in the middle of ordering to go help other tables. I've never experienced such terrible service anywhere.

Early in the evening this was a sports bar with an older crowd. By 10 PM it was all twenty-somethings with high beat and hip-hop music thumping. Beer pong games were being played on four tables. The downside is that the place is somewhat small, and it was really jammed in the front area where the beer pong was being... More

We hunted this place out as we were looking for somewhere to watch the NFL game. The viewing for that was good, although the bar is quite small. They have large screen tv's and then smaller TVs dotted around so you can watch it throughout the bar, and outside. The drinks are reasonably priced, expensive compared to Brasilito where we...

Do not get their Thursday special which is a frozen mojito and which looks like a frozen disgusting slurpy is about to jump and attack you from the glass. And it tastes just the way it looks with zero alcohol. Tried their another 2 for 1 cocktail which was supposed to be pretty strong (in your dreams probably). After cocktails... More

Food is fresh and very delicious. Good selection of beer if you are looking for micro brews or a "generic" (coors, blue moon,etc). Great atmosphere to watch sports with several large screens and one giant projector. The bathroom is a little on the dingy side but only bad thing to say about the place.

I got the California Burger and my wife had the 'build your own burger'. Both were excellent! Many TV's with American Sports (including ice hockey)! Good service. A good 'burger and beer' sports bar.

My wife and I got lucky and were able to sit at a table and had a great waitress. We both ordered burgers that where awesome. The beers were great as well. We will definitely be back! The tv's were an added bonus !

For some reason this place seemed always crowded at night. In my opinion it didn't have much character. If I was in an American city I'd probably like it. But I just didn't feel like that sort of place when in the cool funky beach town of tamarindo
